  • Harriman softball squeaks by...

    The Lady Devils of Harriman looked to defend their home clay against Rockwood after losing to the Lady Tigers earlier in the week.

    Neither pitcher, Marilyn Franklin of Harriman or Baylee Young of Rockwood, could find their groove as they were both pulled from the game. Neither of their reliefs could keep runs off the board either, as the game ended with Harriman squeaking by Rockwood, 10-9.

    Rockwood got its offense going in a hurry as its first two batters reached base and eventually came around to score.

  • Midway baseball picks up wins...

    After a postponement Monday at Cosby, the Eagles were invited to play a doubleheader Tuesday at Midway. Now, they may wish they had declined on the invite.

    The Green Waves won both ends of the double header, 10-3 in the first game and 11-1 in the second.

    Midway improved to 6-3 with the five inning wins.

    The Eagles showed up with their bats ready in the first game. Midway’s top pitcher Zach Edwards walked the first two batters and then allowed a double to score the two runs. A single scored the third Cosby run before Edwards settled down.

  • Jones’ homer seals win for Lady...

    Through the first 11 games of the season the Oliver Springs Lady Cats softball team has recorded 9 wins, scored 108 runs and only allowed 10 runs.

    However, on Wednesday against Oneida, Oliver Springs did something it hadn’t done yet this season, pick up a 1-0 victory off of a home run hit.

    The bats were slow through the first three-and-a-half innings, but Oliver Springs pitcher Courtney Jones notched the biggest hit in the bottom of the fourth.

  • Kingston’s Donathan signs with...

    Another Roane County athlete has signed on to play college ball.

    This time, it would be Kingston baseball’s Brandon Donathan who signed on to continue his baseball career with Martin Methodist College.

    Donathan, a senior at Roane County High School, said he was looking at three or four different schools, but the interest Martin Methodist showed him helped sway him toward the Pulaski school.

    “They let me know that they wanted me,” Donathan said.

  • Rockwood boys, girls tennis...

    The Rockwood boys and girls tennis teams completed a clean sweep on Meigs County on Wednesday night.

    Drake Long started things off with a close 8-6 victory over Matthew Meadows. After the first match scare for the Tigers, Jared Lemons held on for a 9-7 win over Cainan Howard.

    Those two matches proved to be the Tigers best chances to win during both singles and doubles.

    Tanner Green picked up an 8-0 win over Seth Maynor followed by Rockwood’s Josh Spurling defeating Shesaun Patel, 8-1.

  • Midway softball drops two games

    It was a tough two-game district stretch for the Midway Lady Green Waves Monday losing 2-0 to Meigs County and then dropping a 5-1 game to Grace Christian on Tuesday.

    The district losses leave Midway with a 1-2 record in District 3-A and 4-3 overall.

    Monday at Decatur, Midway’s offense was all but shut down. The Lady Waves collected three hits and the closest they came to scoring was in the fifth inning.

  • Tigers baseball defeats Harriman

    “They came ready to hit, and we dug ourselves too big of a hole in the first inning.” Harriman head coach Andy Adcox said.

    The hole being referred to was a five run deficit which proved to be too much for the Blue Devils to overcome as Rockwood picked up the 16-8.

    “We were able to come out and take advantage of some lucky breaks for us early.” Rockwood head coach Jake Witter said.

  • Midway’s Campbell leaves for...

    Midway is once against looking for a head football coach.

    Now former Green Waves head coach Joe Campbell announced he would be leaving Midway to take over the reins of Loudon High School’s football team.

    “I’m excited,” Campbell said, “but it’s a mixture of emotions. The hardest part was to look at my players (and tell them).”

    During his four-year tenure South of the River, Campbell racked up a 22-24 overall record and reached the playoffs in three seasons.

  • Raiderettes fall to Columbia...

    The Roane State Raiderettes couldn’t find their swing as they lost a doubleheader to Columbia State. Roane State was unable to get the bats going at all in the first game as they lost the contest 9-0 and the game ended early, as the run-rule came in to effect after the fifth.

    The first inning showed some offense for Columbia State, as they were able to pull out three quick runs to jump ahead early. The Raiderettes got two runners into scoring position in the bottom of the first but were unable to pull any runs out of it to end the first.
